7 7 Action Items for Weeks 9 High Level Open Issues –Confirm Individual participants for preliminary program OPEN –Description of Demos for Preliminary Program COMPLETED –APTA Bus and if we can integrate transport to/from capitol hill OPEN –Exact Dimensions from Parking Lot and Intersection GID 50% –Commitment Process/Letters to PG DPW, Petersen and participations: OPEN 7

8 8 Notional Demos Themes Goal is to encourage Congress to be a pioneer and leader on ITS implementation in anticipation of new transportation or climate security legislation this year –A taste of what we can achieve with more ITS infrastructure –A taste of how easy ITS is to integrate with what is already available and that interoperability means we are ready for nationwide deployment –A notion of what we can achieve with more ITS R&D and deployment dollars in critical areas –Demo participants suggest focus on a few applications only to reduce complexity and focus on key items of Congressional Interest: Tolling/VII and Parking Services similar to World Congress Loops Intersection Safety and Signal Priority/Pre-emption at at five Intersections, VMT Charging Integrate above, if possible, with OEM Vehicles promoting their safety features –We are attempting final call on commitments moving forward with participant site survey at National Harbor and Capitol Hill 8

9 9 Key Opportunity to Increase Funding for ITS in Next Transportation Bill ITS America Annual Meeting being held in Nation’s Capitol during critical debate over the next surface transportation authorization bill An estimated $450-550 billion will be spent on transportation in the next bill, more than double the current funding levels Current authorization bill provides only $110 per year for ITS research, zero funding for ITS deployment and operations ITS America pushing for significant funding increases for ITS research and deployment, which will benefit ITS industry at all levels including OEMs New Congress and Administration very receptive to ITS solutions for safety, mobility, environment Annual Meeting provides critical opportunity to give Members of Congress a hands-on experience with ITS solutions that are here today Hands-on experience more effective than 100 briefings or PowerPoints Successful demos key to building Congressional support for ITS priorities 9

10 10 Selling Point for Participants Engage at a critical level, at a critical time Connect with lawmakers and national leaders in ITS development and deployment. Annual Meeting Demos can show what ITS can do now as point of departure for what it can do in the future One-on-One meetings with Congressman –Direct dialogue on how federal government can better serve OEMs, ITS Industry and public sector interests –Have a more influence on Regulatory Affairs 10

11 11 Annual Meeting Technology Demonstrations Builds on the demonstrations deployed at the ITS World Congress Audience is primarily new lawmakers and executive branch officials who will influence transportation in the next four years We envision three demonstrations: –“City Streets” Demonstrations including Stand-Alone, Vehicle-to- Vehicle and Vehicle-to-Roadside ITS systems –“Traffic Management Center (TMC) of the Future” –Infrastructure and other Demonstrations Venues are Washington DC National Harbor and Capitol Hill Plan for demos to be completed by end of January March ITS America Tech Fair on Capitol Hill to preview June Demos to Lawmakers 11

12 12 City Streets Demos Three days of “City Streets” Demonstrations at National Harbor –Vehicle Only - Advanced Driver Assistance Safety Demonstrations –Vehicle-Infrastructure Integrated Demonstrations –Mobility: In-motion applications –Safety: Communications based Safety Demonstrations –Infrastructure Only Demonstrations –Set up in parking lot and Exhibit spaces –A select few will be set up for one-day Capitol Hill demonstration to reach lawmakers who otherwise cannot make it to National Harbor 12

13 13 “City Streets” Format Dynamic safety demonstrations led by OEMs –May integrate infrastructure elements, possibly including VII/IntelliDrive, where opportunity exists –also may include DARPA Urban Challenge vehicle participation Infrastructure Systems Demonstrations led by vendors –May include own vehicles and infrastructure to reduce integration complexity –May include static demonstrations in the parking facility Unlike World Congress, will not be staged, narrated theatre show, but in- vehicle demo rides Will run during exhibit hours at National Harbor, with a select few running one day on Capitol Hill 13

32 32 ITS America’s Policy Objectives A new revitalized approach to transportation, using technologies that can optimize transportation systems to achieve a new set of important goals: –Safety: prevent accidents before they happen and provide better tools to improve incident response. –Mobility: strengthen economic productivity, the environment, and quality of life –Efficiency: improve use of technology to move people and goods from origin to destination on time. –Sustainability: reduce transportation’s environmental impact by actively managing traffic, reducing congestion, facilitating shifts to transit, and other strategies to reduce energy use and emissions. Receive a performance-based funding that ensures accountability of transportation agencies by requiring a commitment to specific performance metrics and incentivizes agencies to utilize available tools and strategies to meet aggressive performance goals. 32

33 33 ITS America’s Policy Objectives Achieve Nationwide ITS deployment with dedicated funding and substantial flexibility for State and local definition of priorities. This deployment focus should not consider ITS applications as being external to the transportation infrastructure, but rather integral to its performance. Incentive a strong private sector role with the flexibility to allow commercial interests to compete and deliver the highest value solutions for our infrastructure, environmental and consumer needs. Create multimodal solutions with a focus on creating economic choices that are aligned with our safety and mobility needs, environmental priorities, and social preferences. Viable multimodal options must be pursued that are cost effective, efficient, and attractive to private and commercial users. 33
